I’m very late in posting these, but here are a few photos from the October model train show in Winnipeg. I didn’t take a lot of photos.
Here are my photos from the Fredericton model train show.
It was a good show. There was a good assortment of displays, from the Fredericton modules to the N-Bender layout to the O-Scale layout from Fredericton, even to the wooden trains my son fell in love with. It was good to catch up with a few old friends there, too. The only problem came when I tried to leave – my son did NOT want to go!
I will be at the show with the kids on Saturday, and probably on Sunday as well.
Here’s a little video I took with my Canon S3 of an N scale military train at the Moncton train show.
More to come…
On Saturday November 17 I visited the Dartmouth model railroad show with my two youngest kids. I was pretty impressed with the displays – some really nice work there. The usual vendors were there and I walked away with a 3-pack of container cars and a signed copy of Jay Underwood’s new book From Folly to Fortune: The Firing of James Richardson Forman. I look forward to reading it!
I put a bunch of photos in my gallery but here are a few for your enjoyment.
Here’s a Lego train running around the layout. Note the display screen on the wall showing what the steam locomotive is seeing.
Kevin G took video of quite a bit of the show:
No, I haven’t forgotten about this blog. I’m finally starting to uncover my layout now that the basement is finished.

My two oldest kids and I went to the Moncton model railroad show Saturday. We had a great time. I enjoyed meeting some people I only knew online, and chatting with old friends. I didn’t come away with too much – five timetables and a few Aroostook Valley cars.
